Factfile: Getting to know Milot Rashica

22 June 2021

Milot Rashica became Norwich City’s first signing of the 2021-22 summer transfer window when he completed a move from Werder Bremen on Tuesday.

The Kosovan forward can play as an attacking midfielder or winger and began his career at Vushtrria in 2010.

After spending three years with the youth teams, Rashica broke through to the senior side, making his professional debut at the age of 16.

21 appearances and nine goals later, Dutch side Vitesse came calling, initially looking to recruit Rashica for their first-team.

As well as featuring frequently for Vitesse in the Eredivisie, Rashica took part in 2017’s KNVB Beker final, in which Vitesse beat AZ Alkmaar 2-0 for the first major trophy in their then-125 year history.

Rashica made a total of 100 appearances in all competitions, scored 15 goals and got 24 assists for Vitesse before bringing about the interest of Bundesliga side Werder Bremen.

Between 2018 and 2021, he went on to rack up 27 goals and 19 assists in 100 games for Werder Bremen.

At international level, Rashica represented Albania from Under-17s to the first-team before switching to Kosovo.

With the latter, he made his debut in a 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifier against Finland, coming up against his future teammate, Teemu Pukki.
